The Cow is regarded as a ‘holy’ animal in Hindu culture and worshipped by many people. It has a great significance even in the mythology. With high regards on the cow, the Himachal Pradesh government has passed a resolution declaring cow as the ‘rashtra mata’ or the mother of the nation.
This move comes after Congress MLA Anirudh Singh received the support of the ruling BJP legislators and the assembly is now set to forward the demand to the Centre.
Anirudh Singh said that there is a need for such a move because people abandon the sacred animal after it stops giving milk and there was a need to appreciate its huge contribution to humanity.
